Moon Desert Research Station


Hugh S. Gregory, Crew Scientist/Project MAST Surveyor

Professionally an avid Spaceflight Historian based in Vancouver Canada, he has worked as an Engineers' Surveyor, an Industrial Paramedic/E.M.T. (Industrial Ambulance Officer) and managed his own Occupational Health and Safety Program consulting service. He lectures occasionally in local schools on spaceflight history and astronomy. Hugh owns and operates the H.R. McMillan Planetarium's affiliated space and astronomy educational BBS "SpaceBase(tm)" and was the moderator of the 8 internationally distributed "SB-" prefixed space news service echoes for the amateur FidoNet network, reaching out to over 5,000 amateur BBS's world wide for over 15 years. SpaceBase is also the affiliated BBS service for R.A.S.C.'s Vancouver Centre and will distribute the data captured each week by the C.A.R.O. Super Nova Search Project when it comes on line.

His latest research includes the conceptual design theory work on the E.L.D.S.R.R. space reactor (which he gifted to JPL back in July of 2002), Project M.O.S.S. (Musk Observatory Supernova Search) for the Musk Mars Desert Observatory in Hanksville, Utah and Project M.A.S.T. (Mars Analogue Simulation Trainer), a VR simulator for the Mars Society to help train and prepare crews for their simulations of Mars surface exploration at the Mars Desert Research Station.

Since December 2004 he has been the Mars Society's Chief Documents Editor for the M.D.R.S. and F.M.A.R.S. research stations, correlating and maintaining the operations manuals and training materials relative to each facility. He was selected for and led M.D.R.S. Crew 35 (February-March 2005) as Mission Commander and Crew Astronomer (to set up Project MOSS) and since returning from analogue Mars he has shouldered the additional duties of relief CapCom, Engineering Office on Watch, Training Materials Developer and is a Paramedic member of the Mars Society's Flight Surgeon team. He "flew" two additional MDRS missions in 2005, ,joining the privately funded research missions of Crew FLAME in June and Crew MAST in October. On Crew MAST he and his wife Anne became the first married couple to take up residence and work at a Mars Society Habitat. He has just accepted an invitation to join the Musk Observatory's Astronomer Team.

He's produced and sold videos on "Voyager 2 at Neptune", "The Gas Planets", "SSTO - The DC-X", "Soviet Space Disasters" and "The Flight Of Buran - The Russian Shuttle Story". His slide/video shows have been appearing at Conventions across North America and also overseas for over 16 years now, including 10 world cons. On weekends he's a private pilot, amateur astronomer (Member RASC), cricket umpire, and enjoys hiking in the Rockies with his wife Anne.

This is Hugh's fourth MDRS "mission" in the past 12 months and he joins Crew 45 as their Crew Scientist - Surveyor, to attempt to gather the final data need for his Project M.A.S.T. On this "flight" all of his Surveying will be done "in-sim", to help the Mars Society and the Moon Society gather additional data on just how surveying could be done on Mars and the Moon by a surface exploration team.
